It is what we call the people who fall in love with Paperworks Studio. You carry the torch and share what we do over a cup of coffee or, like below, an email to friends. From all of the 150+ artists at Paperwork Studio, we sincerely appreciate your will to change lives.
To become an ambassador pf Paperworks Studio and support the Autism Society, visit the Autism Society store.
It's a season for causes. Two of my favorites –environmental protection and human dignity – have come together in a mission-oriented social enterprise company, Paperworks Studio. I hope you'll consider making purchases of recycled holiday cards from this company, and in the process support independence for people working courageously to overcome challenges like autism and physical disabilities.
Paperworks Studio, based in Traverse City, MI, engages more than 150 artists who create appealing recycled holiday cards handmade with rose petals, wheelchair wheels and other unusual materials. The artists also make other unique cards not sold anywhere else, including Lee Jeans recycled blue jean cards and cards made with wool sweaters, coffee grounds and other recycled materials.
I've used the blue jean and the coffee ground cards, and I highly recommend them. If you know me at all, you know I'm always looking – not just at the holidays – for cards to send friends and family that are different from the norm. Now I have a year-round supplier, and I'm glad that the work going into them helps those who create them as well as the planet.
You can order the cards directly here: http://www.paperworksstudio.com/
If you have time for a short video about the Studio, check it out here.
Please give this project all the help you can, enjoy the use of the recycled cards, and spread the word.
